Postcard from India

What can I tell you about India? We saw many beautiful things there.

We also saw many slums and pile upon pile of trash everywhere.

We were overwhelmed by the crowds, traffic and incredible heat & humidity (that's what we get for going during summer & monsoon season!).

We saw cows, goats, sheep, pigs and monkeys all roaming freely plus oxen, camel & elephants working.

We were lucky to be in Nagpur during festival season & got to visit many of the neighborhood Ganesh displays as well as see how the idols are made.

Now, I know you all expected to hear a lot about the food. Surprisingly, I didn't photograph any of it, curry just doesn't photograph well. We really enjoy Indian food and had some wonderful food though I found much of it to be too spicy for whimpy me, Matt loved it. The Indians also seem to love Chinese food though its changed for their tastes, egg rolls with hot peppers in them anyone? I will admit after almost two weeks of Indian food for every meal I was really looking forward to something different.

The photos are so beautiful! What a great trip. All that spicy food sounds so great to me. :) India is on the list, but it will likely be a while before we make it there.

Welcome back Kat and Matt! I can only imagine the varied spectrum that you would see throughout India. I am sure this was an experience that has changed you in some way.

An experience of a lifetime indeed. I bet it was hot there at that time of year. Please tell me you'll share more of the food you ate? I am so curious about that aspect.

Welcome back! Your photographs are incredible - I also checked out your Flickr set. The architectural pics are particularly gorgeous. No need for food pics after I was taken by the photos at the textile shop! What do you plan to make with the fabrics you bought?

Thanks so much for sharing your travels with us!
